What is NELL Doing?

NELL is looking up your input noun phrase in its knowledge base, and also attempting to infer additional beliefs about it on the fly (by reasoning from other beliefs, and reading more). Therefore, it might take a minute or two.

Underlying API

The demos above are based on a public machine-friendly web-based API that returns a JSON object in response to an HTTP GET request. This underlying API is somewhat more complicated to use, and we offer both detailed documentation and a test UI for developers.
